Everyone’s Songs: An Anime Music Video from 1987

Posted by Michael Pinto on Aug 4, 2008 in Animation |

The above animated short is from the long running Japanese series Minna no Uta (みんなのうた) which translates as Everyone’s Songs and has been on the air since 1961. The show is interstitial programming which runs there’s a five minute gap on NHK and the series focuses on introducing new songs and animators. The above 1987 film was animated by Taku Furukawa and the featured song is Kumo ha Haretara by Etsuko Sai. What I love about the animation is that it’s very Japanese in style and approach yet it’s not the typical look that you associate with anime. The other nice thing about is that the animation isn’t dated, which is pretty amazing since this music video is over 20 years old!
